No one ever said that chasing your dreams would be a smooth ride. It is more like a roller-coaster full of ups and downs. Definitely not for the faint of heart but it can be exhausting to the point where you say “That’s it! I give up! If I shut everything down, everyone around me will either back off or be happier if I just stop all this nonsense.”
Before you do, I want you to stop for a minute. Let’s really think this through. Let’s say you do stop due to the pressure … Read the rest
We have so many thoughts that go through our heads throughout the day. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Research states that people tend to think more negatively than positively. Learn how your thinking influences your attitudes and outcomes.
Some people create their own drama. They need to be a part of the gossip and live their reality like a soap opera. Hopefully the gossip they are a part of is good gossip – spreading how great they think people are. If not, they are coming from a place of judgment and their assumptions and perception may be totally off base.
Whereas for others, life chaos comes from taking on too much or over-scheduling themselves. There can be several reasons for this:
You do not want to miss out on being a part of some big. (You like to

Whatever you do – DON’T STOP! Remember the Law of Motion – what is in motion stays in motion. Now is not the time to stop.
The power of our minds is amazing yet we have more negative that positive thoughts going through our minds at any moment in time. I came across this message in Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Doby Dr. Robert H. Schuller that reinforces the mindset you must have to achieve success. I love this message:
” Success all starts in your head, and every person has the freedom to choose to be a success or not.
Choose to succeed. See yourself as a successful person, and you will be a successful person.”
Let’s face it when obstacles or roadblocks show up in life, many people will look at the situation as a problem. There are others who shift their thinking and look for the possibilities. Hence, this is where many businesses are born and peace and harmony may even come to be.
I see abundance.
There was a time when I looked at what others where doing and thought “What a grand life they have!” They never have any problems. Why does life seem so perfect for them and not for me?” What a pity party! Thank goodness I have … Read the rest
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”

This quote by Eleanor Roosevelt speaks volumes to how we can create the results that we want in life. There are many things we tell ourselves we cannot do or we may procrastinate and avoid them at all costs. Everything has a cost or payoff. Many people avoid conflict because it is uncomfortable. Yes, it is uncomfortable but it can be done respectfully

This past month, I spent a great deal of time reflecting on my business growth and reviewing where I came from. I was listening to a Louise L. Hay’s audiobook, The Power of the Spoken Word. Hay talked about how powerful the words we use are and how they can affect the outcomes we get. She stated that the Universe or God loves us so much that we are granted what we ask for and speak of. Her example was how we look at ourselves and speak to ourselves in the morning when we get up. Think about what … Read the rest
